BEAUMONT – With a resurfacing of the courts at the Thompson Family Tennis Center in mind, the Lamar tennis programs combined to an all-day fundraiser on Saturday, bringing more than $10,000 for the project.
The event started with a drill session open to adults and juniors alike before breaking out for lunch and a presentation by Jesse Cooper.
The afternoon was filled with competition as select donors were paired with LU players to participate in doubles play. Dr. Rajen Desai and Natalia Mayagoitia took home the Cathy Beene Flight and Alicia Porte and Dr. John Taylor were named champions of the Linda Rupert Flight. Brian Mills paired up with Bruno Snyder to win the James Schmidt draw, and the final winners were Ron Wesbrooks and Mikko Rajamaki in the Sherwood Stewart Flight.
LU Tennis is still in the process of raising funds for the facility upgrades. For more information on the project, contact David Wong at (409) 880-8056 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
